    I mentioned in two other post that were discussing the group purchase of Can-back tops that I would find out the particulars and post them. I talked with Brian at Can-Back and he said that manufacture of the Blazer version would begin in Jan with possible shipping in Feb. I don't know why it is going to take this long, maybe it is going to be upgraded/modified, or maybe he is busy building other model tops. He said that there would be an initial savings of 5% for the first five sold and more off for more the more sold. Those details would be decided closer to Jan though he did say 5% for the first five and mentioned 10% and 15% but didn't say how many would have to be sold for these savings. Like I said, more info in Jan. We would have to set up a time frame to order it and when ordering we would have to say what group we were with to get the discount. Also if there were some members who could have it delivered to one location he would cut those members a deal on the shipping which is another $125.00. Sound to me that if we got enough people to buy you could possibly get $180.00 off. I guess if we only get five people it would only save us about $60.00. Regardless of what the savings I am going to buy one anyway and just thought that if all of the people that expressed interest also bought one we could save some dough as a community. Plus it is after tax time. I have heard alot of interest but I know that things come up. Let me know.

    I am responding to this mainly to subscribe to the thread. I will try to keep up with it until closer to the order time. t89blazer said he was interested and we live near each other so that will help too. I like any and all savings. Please let me know if the order time sneaks up on us and we haven't decided on a group thing. Thanks for taking this bull by the horns so to speak uberbeans.:D :bow:

    A high end fabric back. www.can-back.com for pictures.

    No problem, it's good for me and it's good for you. Anything for the brotherhood.

    $1200 before discount. Expensive, but REALLY good.

    The previous owner of Can-Back once said that if enough people showed interest in the product, that they would redesign the side rails so that no drilling would be required. The holes for the factory hard top would be used to fasten the rails like the Can-Back for the Four Runner. There is a place on their website that you can add comments and request info, maybe if enough people request the change the new owners will make it. This small thing would not keep me from buying a Can-Back, but I have a nice rust free truck and would like to keep the drilling to a minimum.
